By the Lake at Kellerman's, Thursday Afternoon
What Jonothon knew about canoeing could be summed up in very few words: There is a boat. There are paddles. Somehow, you use one in order to propel the other, and pray you don't fall in.

Not that he was particularly worried about falling in. Fears of drowning were pretty much obliterated along with his need to breathe. And anyhow, there were lifejackets. Lifejackets which, he had to note, looked absolutely ridiculous.

//The bright orange'll be a good look on yer, luv,// he mused, leaning over the edge of the wharf to peer into the canoe.

[For the daaaate. Stuck here so as to not risk breaking the Kellerman's posts. I'm done spamming the flist today, promise!]

"I think we'd have to build a really big music store," Didi decided. "They'd all end up there eventually, right?"

//Each and every last one of 'em,// Jono agreed. //Make it big enough and point out what's become of MTV, and they might never leave.//

And then all would be saved!

"So what would you do if a bunch of Didis invaded?" Didi wondered. "No going for the ankh. That's cheating."

//If the island were to be overrun by Didis, who's to say I'd want to be rid of them?// He leaned his head back slightly, making a big show of thinking it over. //If the population of Fandom happened to be depending on me for heroics in that department, I daresay we'd all be doomed to an overwhelming combination of cute smiles and good company.//

"... that may have been the sweetest answer ever," Didi said, giving him one of those cute smiles. "I think I'll keep you around."

Jono was practically beaming, now.

//Well, it was either that, or I'd point them all to the music shop where all of the Jonothons are.//

"And then they'd get distracted listening to the Jonos talk about what's wrong with MTV," Didi finished. "So -- we'd be a pretty easy invasion to thwart."

And people were afraid of her.

//Well, really, there is plenty th'matter with MTV nowadays. Makes me want to go back to my own time and beat down th'door so it never happens,// Jono offered.

Because that was totally what they were talking about, right?

Maybe he ought to paddle some more.

"Mmmm. Y'know, it's just barely possible you mentioned that once or twice," Didi said with understatement. She paddled away, a little lazily. "Think we can make it to the other side?"

Not the way you're paddling, Didi.

//Eventually,// Jono mused, glancing somewhere in the general direction of the side of the late. //We aren't in any sort of hurry, are we, luv?//

"I don't have any other dates today," Didi told him, following his glance. "Just ... this. And you."

Deliberately, she all but stopped paddling.

"We have time."

Jono dabbled about with the paddle in the water for a moment more, and then he smiled that crinkle-eyed smile of his, looking back toward her as he pulled his oar back into the boat.

//We could very well stay out here on into the evening, couldn't we?//

Finding their way back to shore after dark couldn't be all that difficult.

"Think anyone would miss us?" And, oops, her foot tapped into his.

They could swim back to shore if they had to.

//Oh, everybody,// Jono decided, a smirk somewhere in his expression as he lifted his toe and gently tapped the top of Didi's foot under his boot. Kind of a 'caught you,' moment, right there. //I imagine the whole population of the campground will be out lookin' for us. There'll be a fanfare when we see fit to return, no doubt.//

Didi laughed. "Right, and they'll be joining arms to form a human chain and comb the woods if we aren't in bed for lights out."
